Ca: Islanders flock to agency stores during Saturday liquor store shutdown

Sarah MacMillan reports:

Islanders looking for libations for their weekend plans flocked to agency liquor stores Saturday while all corporate Liquor Control Commission (LCC) stores were closed due to computer issues that shut down all point of sales systems.

At Mel’s on St. Peters Road in Charlottetown, a staff member ushered in groups of people who waited in line outside in the cold early Saturday evening. The Mel’s location is one of eight agency stores across the Island, which were not affected by the shutdown.
